Unbiased: Oregon Home Inspectors cannot do repairs. Home inspectors are not Code enforcers, Reports do not Pass or Fail a home. The report is to give information on the home and all the systems conditions. Over the years new construction building requirements have been changed, most of these changes are not required by state or municipal laws to be upgraded. Inspectors report on known safety issues, and system information for possible desired maintenance and upgrades as well as calling out defective systems in need of repair.

We do not work for the Realtor even if they referred us to you. We work only for you and do everything we can to make a complete and comprehensive report.  For details on what is covered in the report please Read Oregon State Home Inspectors Standards and Practices.
